A chunky, distinctive object of brilliant design in and of itself, Stylepedia is the first handy, cross-referenced desk guide to the kaleidoscope that is modern design. In hundreds of illustrated entries, Heller and Fili, the award-winning authors of Euro Deco and numerous other popular design titles, survey the designers, schools, and movements that comprise the practice today as well as take a fascinating glimpse back at some of the seminal early leaders. From the first Santa Claus to appear on a Coca-Cola bottle to the increasingly ubiquitous camouflage tee shirt, iconic everyday items of yesterday and today provide valuable inspiration to designers and design aficionados. As quirky as it is useful and positively packed with lavish color illustrations, this designer's design compendium is the only one of its kind.

Gutes Grafikdesign basiert neben eigenen Ideen und Kreativität auf Schlüsselelementen, die durchaus erlernt und trainiert werden können. Hierfür analysieren Steven Heller und Gail Anderson herausragende Arbeiten der weltweit renommiertesten Gestalter mit: Von Michael Bierut, Jan Tschichold, Anton Stankowski, Neville Brody und Jessica Hische über Fons Hickmann, Paul Rand und Stefan Sagmeister bis hin zu Seymour Chwast, Otl Aicher, Paul Sahre und Christopher Niemann – erstklassige Projekte von fünfzig Kreativen werden hinsichtlich Kreativität und Techniken beleuchtet. Wie lassen sich Informationen klarer visualisieren? Wie können Lösungen emotional aufgeladen werden? Schließlich bringen die Autoren Handwerk und Konzeption zusammen, erklären, wie sich die Form auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise um den Content schmiegen kann – humorvoll, typografisch oder aber mit dem Spiel von Perspektiven. Last, but not least widmet sich ein ausführliches Kapitel dem Storytelling. Ein umfassendes Arbeitsbuch also, das gerade Newcomer bestens durch ihre Ausbildung begleiten wird.

Midcentury Storefront Design, 1938-1950

Edition trilingue. Dans l'Amérique de l'après-guerre, tout laissait à penser que l'avenir allait être radieux. Opulence et optimisme sans partage apposaient leur marque sur tout, du design automobile à l'architecture, y instillant plans et courbes plus grands que nature. Le design des devantures de cette époque est emblématique de ce phénomène, représenté ici par une importante collection de dessins de vitrines réalisés à la main remontant à la période 1938-1950. Ces projets spectaculaires, souvent grandioses, pour des magasins de primeurs ou de chaussures, des salons de beauté ou des boulangeries, par exemple, sont les témoins d'une époque où les magasins étaient des sanctuaires sacrés pour la congrégation des chalands américains : impressionnants, voire légèrement intimidants, à l'image de l'avenir même. Rassemblés pour ce livre unique en son genre, les dessins de cette rétrospective révèlent l'état d'esprit d'une époque exceptionnelle dans l'histoire. Outre un large éventail de dessins, on y voit des photographies d'époque en noir et blanc de magasins réellement construits dans le même style. Shop America propose un regard hors du commun sur l'Amérique marchande du milieu du siècle telle qu'elle se représentait elle-même

For more than three decades, renowned graphic designer and self-described Italophile Louise Fili has traveled the cities and countryside of Italy cataloging the work of sign craftsmen in whose hands type takes on new life with a tantalizing menu of styles. Classical, eclectic, or Futurist; in gold leaf, marble, brass, wood, wrought iron, enamel, ceramic, or neon; painted, carved, inlaid, etched, tiled, or stenciled— the creative possibilities are endless. Grafica della Strada is Fili's photographic diary of hundreds of Italy's most inventive restaurant, shop, hotel, street, and advertising signs. A major influence on Fili's own work, many of these marvels of vernacular design live on solely in this book, a typographic love letter to Italy that will be an inspiration to designers and Italophiles everywhere.
